Sexual Assault Kit Tracking

Florida Track-Kit (https://fl.track-kit.us/) was established by Florida Statute 943.326 upon passage of House Bill 673 (Gail's Law), with oversight by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Track-Kit enables survivors who have a barcoded Sexual Assault Kit collected by a participating medical facility to receive a log-in and password to access a database containing information about the storage location of their SAK. Survivors who report to law enforcement and consent to testing can log in and see the location, testing status, and disposition of their kits, and can opt to receive information about possible DNA matches obtained through the State Crime Laboratory System.  

FDLE Laboratory Sexual Assault Kit (SAK) tracking numbers and turnaround time are reflected on the main Forensics page. 

A basic overview of how the web-based system works, as presented by the vendor, can be viewed at:

All medical facilities that collect SAKs, all law enforcment entities that hold SAK evidence and/or investigate crimes that involve SAKs, and all Florida government crime laboratories must participate in FL Track-Kit. If your agency or medical facility needs a portal site, contact FloridaSAKPolicyCenter@fdle.state.fl.us. Barcoded SAKs for evidence collection MUST be obtained via the Track-Kit portal and are not for use by Medical Examiner's Offices.

As such, consideration for when each county, or entity therein, began participating should be considered when interpreting the data. Data presented are specific to FDLE FY21 SAFE-ITR BJA Grant Reporting Metrics, and are cumulative except for G (3/1/2024 – 4/30/2024).

Previously Unsubmitted Sexual Assault Kit Project 2016-2019

The State of Florida identified there were previously unsubmitted Sexual Assault Kits (SAK) across the state. In 2015, at the direction of the Florida Legislature, FDLE was tasked to determine the number of untested sexual assault kits stored in local law enforcement agencies across the state and to create a plan to complete the testing. FDLE created the Sexual Assault Kit Assessment Survey which was then sent to every law enforcement agency in Florida.

The survey was summarized and closed December 16, 2015 with the following results:

Submission and testing of the previously unsubmitted SAK began and followed the accepted proposal for a three-year goal of completion starting July 1, 2016. The final results of the project are:
